Call for Papers 2019


This form is now closed as we're coming back to all participants during June.


What we provide...

...a venue equipped with the necessary conference technology, an interested audience – approximately more than 5,500 professionals will attend the conference – and we’ll promote the selected events as a fully-fledged component of Reeperbahn Festival Conference programme. In addition, you’ll receive full accreditation for the Reeperbahn Festival with access to all 1000+ concerts, arts activities, and conference events. 

Unfortunately, however, we are unable to cover your travel and accommodation costs.

Our topics

We are looking for topics that address current challenges and developments in the international music industry and fit into at least one of our thematic tracks: Creative Tech, Live Entertainment, Marketing, Media & Journalism, Modern Classical Music, music.brands.(e)motion (sync & brands), Recorded Music, Rights Management, Sound & Society (political impact of music).

Length / Language / Participants

Your event should be between 30 and 60 minutes long.
Your event should be in English. Reeperbahn Festival Conference attendees come from many different countries. (Sessions that address issues with a focus on the German market may be conducted in German). If your call is about a panel, there should be a maximum of three speakers (of which at least one woman).


If you’d like to involve additional speakers in your event, please enter the name, position, and company/organisation of each additional speaker under “Speakers” in the online form. Should you require allowances for travel expenses, for example, for your additional speakers, then please indicate this in the “Costs Speakers” field and state the approximate costs.


Our independent advisory team will review all submissions in May and choose what it believes are the most exciting, surprising, and interesting proposals. You’ll be notified by early June if your proposal has been selected.
